While we have much greater awareness now about how to avoid tooth loss, this problem still affects a good percentage of the population. Regardless of the reasons for tooth loss, this is something that must be handled as quickly and efficiently as possible. Today, more and more people who have lost a tooth (or several) are turning to dental implants to regain function and a nice smile. Time and time again, this solution has been proven as one of the best ways to replace missing teeth, whether those teeth have fallen out or been extracted.
Here, we look at some of the reasons why dental implants are such a popular treatment at Aventura Dental Center.
- Comfort. It doesn’t matter how good a dental restoration looks, if it is not comfortable, it doesn’t hold its value. Dental implants provide greater comfort than dentures because they do not require periodic adjustments. They continue to fit well because they don’t sit on the gums, they are secured in the jawbone just like natural teeth.
- Natural appearance. Dental implants are titanium posts that are not seen in the mouth. They sit beneath the gums and a like crown or bridge. These restorations are custom made using top-of-the-line dental ceramic that looks just like real enamel. To create a seamless smile, the dentist orders the crown or bridge in a color that matches surrounding teeth.
- Reliability. It takes some time for dental implants to become fully encased in healthy bone tissue. Once they do, they operate just like natural tooth roots. They are not felt when chewing, but act as that secure foundation you’ve been used to from your natural teeth.
- Lasting. It doesn’t take much care to keep dental implants in optimal condition. Patients who brush and floss as directed by their dentist are equipped to avoid gum disease and, without that as a persistent threat, dental implants could last a lifetime.
- Proven. One of the questions patients have about dental treatment is how well it works. Dental implants have been around for decades, so we know of their very high success rate. This knowledge empowers patients to feel confident in their investment into a healthy, beautiful smile.
